We also had a Photo Booth to confuse things and the TV was being used for a strictly come dancing slideshow. Its something that certainly needs introducing and managed to get things going, bit like the photo booths in the early days. it was a staff party in a restaurant with a lot of different alcoves and areas, so it was really not suited for it. Much better for a wedding in one big room. As I say it worked fine although on my phone it took ages (5-10 seconds) for the photos to upload. If it is a raspberry 2 would it make much difference if I asked for a 3 as i know the processor is faster one that. It may also relly largely on the wifi speed, which I doubt is quite up to the standards of my BT hub?

    Yes its just a box strapped to the back of the TV, just needs additional power as the USB supply has not enough amps. Looks well tidy though with my gravity plate and distance pole. All in all Yes i would invest in this, but I want to insist that I can get free support (he wants £100 a year subscription) and the software is made cleaner and I can edit out his logo. After all he is probably making at least £350 profit if we ignore development time and intercellular rights. I shall do a proper test this week, but I want to wireless DMX my lighting first so I can program that at the same time in a local venue.

    RPi 2 or 3 won't matter for this speed, that's purely the WiFi speed.

    This suggest a Raspberry Pi 3, which (I think) needs more power than most TV USB slots supply...whereas a Raspberry Pi 2 usually gets by OK with these.

    Yep its a 3.

    Would adding a separate plug in router be a massive improvement or not worth the hassle? My TP LINK one is splendid for the DMX system i have and will sit behind the TV on a 3 gang extension. Regarding the time it uploads, he is looking at a way to resize on the clients end, but has rightly said they will be bad enough quality to start with as people just don't get the concept of good lighting and composure. Makes me laugh at weddings when they are shooting into the light (usually on a terrible camera phone) especially when there is a professional photographer stood right next to them! I guess its subjective and the main draw of this is the fact that 'my photo' is being shown live (regardless of the quality)!!

    what does it look like, Toby, when all set up?

    I'm near completion with a Bluetooth version using a Pi3

    By all accounts it probably looks like a big telly on a pipe stand. The gubbins mounts on the back out of sight

    Yes plate, distance pole, 2 truss half couplers and a TV mount. Nice and clean and not a trip hazard, especially in wedding breakfasts. Accident waiting to happen that was.

    Here we go. this stupid forum package does not acknowledge the existence of Vimeo, but you should still see it.
    I had a much longer video, but I was using my leg to initiate talking and it looks silly, so used the second part.

    I ended up smashing the TV on the way back, so need a new one! It was a bit old and heavy anyway.

    Use the Name:  vimeo-16x16.png
